Happy Birthday! Bummer about the cold, but sounds like you had a fab day otherwise.

Melody said...

Happy 46th Birthday to you! I turned 37 on March 5 - where does the time go? Your birthday sounded as nice as mine, besides the cold bit.

Stomper Girl said...

Sounds like a gorgeous day of spoiling for someone who deserves it. Did the boys like the restaurant?

Sarah said...

Happy Birthday. Sounds like a delightful day. I'm just a couple months behind you.

A cold is a small price to pay lady! I hope I look half as good as you do when I turn 30.
*cheeky grins*
And thank you ever so much about the cheering, it warms my 'eart it does!

Tania said...

The Mr grumbles endlessly about homeopathic placebo nonsense but at the first sign of a cold squeals for the aconite. Personally, I haven't a problem if a placebo works.

As far as the rest of your day goes. I'd like one of those in a month or so. Happy day, excellent lady.

Happy Birthday! What a lovely day (apart from the cold - most unfair).

I just love that beautiful autumn light in the first photo.

Sounds lovely!
Happy Belated Birthday.
Here's a tissue.

Oh! Happy, happy birthday to you, dear Suse! And I'm sorry about the cold. I've got one too, courtesy of Mr. Badger who shared his with me. Nice, eh?

Happy Birthday! Sounds like it was lovely. I hope the cold passes quickly; at least it came at the end of your day.

LemonyRenee' said...

Happy birthday. I hope your cold passes quickly -- not a way to usher in a new year, is it. Glad you had a nice day anyway.

Knitcoach said...

Happy Birthday, sounds like a lovely way to celebrate, except for the cold.

Sounds like a lovely day all up, barring the sniffles at the end! Happy Birthday!

librarygirl said...

Happy birthday! late to the party but sounds like a perfect day.

pebbledash said...

Happy happy birthday Suse! Sounds a lovely day...except bugger, a cold to end. That's not fair.

katiecrackernuts said...

Happy birthday, the cake's all yours since you blew out the candles. I'll have none of that cold-riddled spittle, thank you.

Stacey said...

Sounds like a lovely day - apart from the cold of course.
I love the light in your photo.
Happy birthday, Suse.

Happy Birthday and lots more of them ! Preferably once a year .
Hope at least one of your presents included a box of tissues and some whisky to make a Hot Toddy or two .

Lynn said...

Dang, I nodded off trying to get to the bottom of your very full comment box! Where was I? Oh, yeah - HAPPY BIRTHDAY to someone who remains younger than I am. With a cooler wardrobe and snappier hair. And I love that last photo!!

Word verif: galluns. As in, drink galluns of water to speed that cold on its way.

Mary said...
